Chelsea boss Frank Lampard was nominated for the Premier League Manager of the Month award after guiding Chelsea to a 100 per cent winning run in October.

The Blues won all three Premier League games in the month of October.

Lampard has now been voted as the manager of the month for October, beating Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp, Brighton’s Graham Potter, Leicester’s Brendan Rodgers and Dean Smith of Aston Villa to claim the award following an excellent month.

This is the first time Lampard will claim the award having also been nominated for the September manager of the month award.

After claiming the award, the Chelsea boss said: “Winning an individual award like this, my first one at the club, it is the perfect time to appreciate the close staff who have worked so hard since pre-season and the players, as they are the ones who go out and perform. I am delighted for everybody.

“I would probably say out of the Premier League games we played in October, the one away against Burnley was the highlight because of the way we were so dominant in our performance and Burnley is a very tough place to go. People may have questioned the fact that we are a young team and with the physical nature of the challenge, but we responded very well and played some really good football.

“It was a tight turnaround after a big performance physically for the lads at Ajax and with the travel back. To go up to Burnley at any time is difficult but we managed the game really well.”
